Complete waste, IMO - but I thought it was really good).
I can't find the credits sequence itself, but it was pretty cool. Anyway, now tell me that doesn't kick ass?
It's got a good hummable sound, I think this and Danny Elfman's Spider-Man are the best Marvel themes besides the one for Captain America. Avengers has grown on me, and I liked the work on the first Iron Man, really wish they'd have kept it for the sequels.
I agree with you on Elfman's Spider-Man and Caps music but we have to part ways on The Avengers music and Iron Man's. I kinda have a strong dislike for Iron Man's score in general, it's just not my kind of score. I did dig X-Men: First Class music alot though and X-Men has some great pieces like "Logan and Rogue." The F4 score was fine for that film and more interesting than Ottman usually is in my estimation.
